But I guess I was jw if u have to do it to make them, if it is a step I'm not doing n that's y they don't work cause the bitty ones work!! I haven't ever seen a twisted on in person maybe I should just bite the bullet n buy someones so I can see how they should look???
Well if u can do the itty bitty ones then heck u should be able to get the big one.. Ok well ill give u a quick tip. starch ur bows i buy sta flo its in the laundry isle i put it in a spray bottle n spray away.... i let it sit for a min or so, so its not that wet. fold the ribbon in half and with a pencil mark the line thats ur center dont loose it. make the fig 8 i would say a skinnier 8 works better thank a fatter 8 : ) HTH
